Taylor Swift Hosts 'Reputation' Secret Sessions Listening Party at Rhode Island Home
Taylor Swift’s new album Reputation drops on Nov. 10, but select fans are getting the chance to hear it early .
In keeping with what's become tradition of doing the most for her fans, Swift held an album listening secret session at her oceanfront mansion in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, with personally selected Swifties on Wednesday night. The event follows a London listening session she hosted last week.
Although Swifties didn’t share photos of the actual experience itself, one tweeted that the singer looked like a “literal angel.” Fans were given the chance to hold Swift's album of the year Grammy Award she won for 1989 and received Reputation snake keychains emblazoned with “Watch Hill” on the back as tokens.
These events follow the pattern of listening sessions Swift held in 2014 when she invited fans to 1989 listening parties at her homes in London, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City and Watch Hill, ahead of the album's release.
In related news, Swift announced that she’s releasing her latest Reputation track, “Gorgeous,” at midnight Friday.
Here's what the lucky attendees wrote about the secret session.
